1st Long Sutton cubs complete skipathon for British Heart Foundation

Cubs were skipping to raise more than a hundred pounds for a good cause.

Youngsters from 1st Long Sutton Cubs took part in a skipathon during their meeting on Monday to raise £150 for the British Heart Foundation.

Boys and girls in the unit rose to the challenge of the skipathon magnificently by spending the entire hour-and-a-half session exercising.

The meeting also included a stall promoting the British Heart Foundation and youngsters also brought in money which was taped to pictures of hearts.

Kerrie Ward, from the unit, was thrilled with the children's fundraising efforts.

She said: "I didn’t think we would raise that much as our group only has 11 cubs but they all did amazing well."


Thanks to the life saving research conducted by the charity, four out of five babies born with heart problems have the chance to attend school.
